FLIP is the sequel to the exhibition Copy Construct held at CC Mechelen in 2017. The exhibition focuses on a displaying a temporary archive of artists’ books parallel to about a dozen filmic works. The term ‘FLIP’ associatively refers to the performative gesture of leafing through a book but also to notions of image sequences, reversal (printing), the flipbook, as well as the use of text and images in both books and video works. In short, the exhibition is an attempt to show these media together, emphasizing the use of narrative strategies and image construction as extensions of each other.
Alongside 13 video and film works in the exhibition, about 200 artists’ books from the KASK Collection (Kunstenbibliotheek) will be shown as well as selections by 4 book collectors and publishers, who have been invited for the occasion. The exhibition’s scenography is conceived by Kris Kimpe & Koenraad Dedobbeleer. The exhibition will be accompanied by an exhibition guide, designed by 6m56s, containing a complete bibliography of the displayed books and films.
With works by Franciszka & Stefan Themerson, Bruce Checefsky, Peter Downsbrough, Kasper Andreasen, Anouk De Clercq, Hanne Lippard, Stanley Brouwn, Henri Jacobs, Dirk Zoete, Jasper Rigole, Ulises Carrión, Vincent Geyskens & Jan Op de Beeck, Maud Vande Veire, Laetitia Gendre, Jelena Vanoverbeek, Hilary Lloyd, Kris Kimpe & Koenraad Dedobbeleer.
